  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Silas, fantastic snowboarding for just learning how. You look like a pro out there. You certainly have your Dad's ability on a snowboard and skis! I'm so jealous that you were skiing in 20 inches of powder, however, as much as I love to ski, I haven't had much experience in that much powder! What a winter you all have had.

wow Si you look great! I tried snowboarding once but it was far too icy for my falling. I needed powder like you had. You are so lucky to be able to ski so often! Glad you guys are having fun and enjoy being on the slopes.
